Account blocked and yet people still have access to my books

Hello, please somebody should help my out.
Sometimes in January 2017, I was notify that my account has been blocked as a result that I have multiple accounts which I have no idea about. I have complained to them but they still uphold there decisions to keep the accounts blocked. Since then I have kept the account under scrutiny and I have come to discover that the said blocked account has been used for Amazon's personal interest as people still get access to my books and to the points that I have downloaded all the transactions on my report page for the month of January and I made some money from that. My problem now is that why will Amazon choose to block my account without paying me my due money earned after their accusation which was false and to the point that they still made money from the account and keep it to themselves. To me this is fraudulent. Please my co-author, what is your advice on what to do?

It was my understanding that if they blocked your account, they also took all books down.
Possibly due to a computer glitch on their end, they thought you did have multiple accounts but realized you did not.
The fact that you can get into reports, I would say your account is not blocked.
See if you DO get a payment at the end of the month.

No, you don't get paid when your account is blocked for violating the TOS. They should no longer be for sale, though anyone who actually bought the book will have access to it forever (as such things are measured today).

This doesn't make sense. If you have access to the account, you are not blocked/terminated. You need to keep trying to get someone to look at your issue. Respond to the first email you received, and ask to be put in touch with someone higher up. None of us can do anything for you. Amazon is not here.

Amazon allows readers to access books they've bought. The books will appear on the store, but will not have a buy button. There's nothing you can do about this, no money is being made, and Amazon's only interest is customer satisfaction.

So by having access to the books does that also give them the right to keep the money they make from the books....This is fraudulent. I have sat down and wrote these books all day and night and no one have the right to benefit from it. Of what use is multiple accounts to me?
The multiple account issue is just an avenue to rob me of my royalty.

You could reply on the email telling you your account will not be instated and ask to be transferred to a manager - request the evidence that you have multiple accounts. I think (although I could be wrong) the TOS do state that if the account is blocked you won't be paid.

If someone else in your house has an account - that can cause a problem - it might be that.

Things are getting more civilized. I shall refrain from slang and humor. I really have no idea of what that
company is doing.We have other things to do.

There are some issues that are now public, but may have been around for decades. Maybe they are non issues.
Yet, just last week I have figured out how to fill out the middle of my Book Three. Chapters 3 and 4 can now be finished
smoothly. Then "Nerus" will be complete. The plot flows fast. Most of the "action" is just thinking and conversation.
Ensemble acting based on how humans may interact with aliens under crowd control. That must be an ancient
concept. It really makes sense.

Now I have sense of humor. Xxxxx must be an older and more experienced writer who must have made far more sales than
the average writer in this huge - over one million - platform. (Is that the correct term?) Well, this person must be for real.
Not a Bot, nor some employee of the Company. (I mean in Seattle, not Mclean, VA.) I am a piker. Theory: Red herring
for the old alphabet soup. This makes me yawn. For an elderly mystery/thriller writer, like Mr. Xxxxxxx, I must seem to
be a small puppy.

What I am is an expert on dope and religion. (Ask me what 3 types fit into the Children Of The Book. Easy, eh?)
But do not use phone or net. Paper mail only. That is how I commune with any real people. The forsaid was only
a very simple example. A pure metaphysics debate. Not that meaningful.

I am sorry to say this, but I already know what is happening. My series has been floating around in
various places for 18 years. In a cogent form, only as of last summer, and only due to this place.
As an example, the Flavius Principle, a short one page political speech, was invented by me,
supposedly by some alien, Trader Flavius, has been in common parlance for over 3 decades.
Well, Trader Flavius is fiction. 100%. They should make a doll of him. (As a babylike polar
bear.) He is a stock character. When I do anything, talk of this all over the street. There
must be leaks that are huge. That is only natural.

As I said before, this thing is an untamed frontier. Now to clean up some junk from my blogs.
